montille1997 des Epeneaux, Pommard 1er Clos des Epeneauxtry to find this wine...
(Magnum) The nose is more interesting than the the rather ‘harder’ and stand-offish stance this wine often shows; high-toned with plenty of dried fruits – more interesting that the standard 1997 ‘roasted’ fruits – plus freshness and depth. The palate is sweet with grainy tannin and is very long finishing. It’s clearly a very young, but surprised me in that there is more charachter here than I find in many vintages of this wine.
Rebuy – Maybe
1997 Jean-Marc Boillot, Pommard 1er Les Rugienstry to find this wine...
(Magnum) The nose is understated and tight. The palate has plenty of tannin, but impresses with an extra dimension of flavours that adhere to your gums. Very young but a good bottle.
Rebuy – Maybe
1997 de Montille, Pommard 1er Les Rugienstry to find this wine...
(Magnum) A lovely soft and sweet red fruit nose – still quite primary. Plenty of decent tannin and lots of dimension on the palate. This is young but in the context of the vintage, excellent – the pick of these Pommards.
Rebuy – Yes
